The Benefits of Horse Solarium Therapy

An equine solarium is a system of infrared (IR) lamps that give off infrared heat. It is being used in many boarding stables mainly as a pre-exercise warm up and drying after the ride.
IR is a form of heat radiation, which provides artificial sunlight.


A horse solarium is typically installed above a grooming or wash stall, and then simply plugged in!
The height and angle of the Warendorf Solarium can be adjusted based on the horse’s size by the automatic lift.
As a pre-exercise, the horse stands under the equine light therapy system for a few minutes.  After the ride, the solarium’s circulation fans dry up the coat while the IR rays relax the muscles.

The InfraRed heat energy generated by the lamps penetrates deep into the body’s tissues, increasing blood circulation in muscles and tendons to promote healing of injuries. The IR rays also enhance the production of Vitamin D, an essential part to strengthen the immune system.

The Warendorf Equine Solarium is the most powerful solarium worldwide, with a power output of up to 7,800 Watts! With it’s open elements, the steam of the wet horse has room to evaporate from his body and is not stuck under a large, solid solarium module. This is one of the main advantages of the Warendorf Solarium over other solariums, which are closed, contoured modules.

Light therapy has been shown in over 40 years of independent research worldwide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to muscles and soft tissue. Both, InfraRed and UV lights have been shown to affect at least 24 different positive changes at a cellular level. These results have been widely studied and published. Light therapy delivers a significant reduction in inflammation and increased amount of new muscle and collagen fibers. The effect is similar to a horse being out in a field and enjoying warm sunshine, promoting health and performance; it strengthens vital functions and the immune system.

As with humans, this treatment provides a valuable source of vitamin D, which is essential for joint and bone health and helps the body to absorb calcium. The horse solarium can be a useful way to complement the natural healing of a horse that has suffered abrasions or, perhaps, a sore back.

Nearly all barns throughout cold climate countries in Europe take advantage of the Solarium treatment before and after riding to loosen up the muscles. In addition to their therapeutic use, the equine solarium can also be used to dry horses after exercise and bathing.
